The plant guarantees zero discharge and 85% water savings, according to the businesses. The approach is part of ‘Mission Zero’ which aims to, “dehydrate and detoxify the denim industry by 2025,” said Jeanologia. 
 
“We believe in business as a force for good,” said Jeanologia's marketing director Carmen Silla in a press release. “Our technologies create an ethical, sustainable, and eco-efficient blue jeans industry and we found in AIE the perfect match on this transformation journey.”
